One of the more multi-faceted jobs in construction is project management. Project management includes knowing what it is to be a superintendent, knowing how to estimate, and requires some accounting experience. Who better to take on the responsibility of being a project manager than Jason Riordan.
Jason graduated from Rockhurst University with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Economics, Suma Cum Laude. He came from Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers and Panera Bread where he oversaw the construction of 5 new stores, 13 tenant finishes and the addition of 4 remodels and drive-thrus. He had 12 years of construction experience.
Since Jason has been on board, his role of project manager has included the construction of a school, an athletics facility, a propane truck facility and his current project of a senior living facility.
Jason loves the fact that Straub provides the tools to be successful and persists in doing things the right way. Having the ability to take ownership of what he does allows him to feel free to be himself.
The family environment is very appealing to Jason especially now that he and his wife Shannon will be welcoming a son in September.
Some of us dream about going to Disney World or Disney Land just once, but being a kid at heart, Jason has been there ten times! I bet he can’t wait until his son is old enough to appreciate the Magical Kingdom. Jason is also a huge Royals fan along with baseball in general. You can tell when you walk into his office. He also loves going to the lake and working on his house.
Jason’s favorite quote which hangs in his office is “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Eliot
